SD Lawmakers Endorse Hearing On Development Agency

February 10, 2014, 5:20 PM

SD Lawmakers Endorse Hearing On Development Agency
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Legislature has given final approval to a measure that calls for hearings to investigate the state's economic development agency, including its involvement in issues related to the financing of a failed beef packing plant.

The Senate voted 33-1 to approve a resolution urging the investigation. The House earlier approved the measure.

The Legislature's Government Operations and Audit Committee will hold hearings after several outside review are completed on the Governor's Office of Economic Development. Gov. Dennis Daugaard ordered the reviews after finding out about alleged misconduct in GOED before he took office.

Earlier Monday, a House committee rejected a measure sponsored by members of the Democratic minority. That bill would have set up a special committee to conduct a three-year review of economic development programs.
